Santa Monica stay
the hotel was in really good location we were in walking distance of beach, Santa Monica pier and Venice beach.Staff were extremely helpful, it was very clean and comfortable a bit pricy as I had thought I was paying for a balcony/kitchenette and there was no breakfast included, The furniture was a bit dated. Be prepared to spend money on Uber to travel into Hollywood etc

Looks can be deceptive
Stayed one night as part of a road trip. Was a bit apprehensive as the hotel didn't appear like its picture. Check in was very slow too. However, once inside, the room was clean & tidy - with very good wifi. A really nice touch were the beach towels and bag that was provided too. Perfect location for the beach. And do try "Cha Cha Chicken" just round the corner for excellent Caribbean food. Parking is also pretty cheap at $26 a night.

Great customer service, comfortable room
My boyfriend and I stayed here on the final night of our two week Roadtrip down Highway 1. The hotel was close to the pier and a short walk from Santa Monica Place that has a great number of restaurants and bars. It is also next to the beach. The staff at the hotel reception were really friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable.

The Bayside Hotel - Santa Monica
A really decent hotel. Provided everything we needed and nothing we didn't. They even provide a speaker for your MP3 player or phone. If you're staying in Santa Monica, you'd probably be pushed to find better. One little thing - we arrived in a hire-car in the evening and were leaving early the following morning. Because of this we only had to put a few cents into the parking meter outside the hotel to get us up to the free parking at 18:00 onwards. We left the following morning before enforcement came into play. I don't know how much it would cost otherwise (I think they have a flat-rate car-park at the rear - but I'd check first). All in all - good stuff
